Cyber Fyber

This is a very belated post about a swap with Susan Lenz of Cyber Fyber fame. The orginal swaps she sent seem to have gotten lost in the mail. (It was well after our mail box got blown up, so it wasn't that!) She very graciously sent two freshly made ones from her retreat in Maine in the fall.

The first one is post card size, and you can't see all of the beautiful shiny threads in the scan, but it is a wonderful snapshot of fall in New England.

This one is an ATC, has a very fuzzy texture that reflects the look of the actual piece of bark that is attached. Sue, thank you for taking the time to make these, they're fantastic!

The next two were part of an international swap. This one is from Cheryl in OK. It looks like she felted the background and then added machine embroidery to it. My favorite colors! Thank you Cheryl!

Is it fireworks or a beautiful summer bloom? Either way I am delighted with Sue Singer of CA's ATC. Thank you, Thank you!

So, now I have a collection... How to display them??

Come, Spring

Done for a swap in the Thread Society Yahoo group.
